Oxford University Press

Umeå University researchers can publish open access at no cost in most Oxford University Press journals. Read more about the terms of our agreement with the publisher and what it means for you here.

The open access publishing fee has been pre-paid through an agreement between the library and Oxford University Press (OUP). The agreement applies to open access publishing in hybrid journals included in the Oxford Journals Collection and in their open access journals OUP Fully Open Access.

Terms and conditions

  • You must be the corresponding author, i.e., the one handling communication with the publisher and journal.
  • Your Umeå University affiliation must be stated in the published article.
  • Use your university e-mail ending with @umu.se. The e-mail domain is often used to recognize your eligibility.
  • The agreement applies to articles with a 2023 acceptance date.
  • The agreement applies to the article types "research article", "review article", "brief report" and "case report".
  • Your article will be published under a CC BY license in most cases. Some OUP journals only offer a more restrictive license, such as CC BY-NC-ND or CC BY-NC. Please note that the “standard license” is not an open access license.
  • Please note that the agreement does not cover any additional charges, such as page charges or charges for colour illustrations.

How the publishing process works

Oxford is currently changing their system and depending on the journal, you will either be able to follow the guide on the OUP website or follow the workflow described in the pdf.
